Transcript:

Hello.  My name is Frank Bedu-Addo, I am the Chief Executive Officer of PDS Biotechnology Corporation.  I would like a few moments to speak with you on an important matter.

We are approaching the Special Meeting of Stockholders of PDS Biotechnology Corporation to be held on January 19, 2022.  At the Special Meeting we are asking stockholders to vote on the ratification of the prior approval of the second amended and restated PDS Biotechnology Corporation 2014 equity incentive Plan.  We urge you to vote your shares as soon as possible and we encourage you to vote “FOR” the ratification of the prior approval of the second amended and restated PDS Biotechnology Corporation 2014 equity incentive plan in alignment with our board of directors’ recommendation.

The Board, the Compensation Committee and management believe that the effective use of stock-based incentive compensation is vital to our ability to operate and to ensure our employees continue to execute toward achieving strong performance in the future. The 2014 Plan will allow us to continue to maintain the key policies and practices adopted by our management and Board to align employee and stockholder interests. In addition, our future success depends, in large part, upon our ability to maintain a competitive position in attracting, retaining and motivating key personnel. We believe that the 2014 Plan is essential to permit our management to continue to provide long-term, equity-based incentives to present and future key employees, consultants and directors.

We have retained a proxy solicitor to assist in the solicitation of proxies and provide related advice and informational support.  If you would like to discuss the proposal or have any questions regarding how to vote, you may contact Morrow Sodali LLC by phone at (203) 658-9400. We strongly encourage you to vote “FOR” the ratification of the prior approval of the second amended and restated PDS Biotechnology Corporation 2014 equity incentive plan by casting your vote online at www.ProxyVote.com prior to Wednesday January 19, 2022 so that your vote may be counted before the meeting.

Your vote is critical to the approval of this proposal.  Finally we would like to thank you for your interest and continued support in PDS Biotechnology.

Have a good day
